Aurora: Gateway to the Rockies

Aurora, Colorado, is known as the Gateway to the Rockies for good reason. Its location at the foot of the Front Range means that even if you’re here for a quick visit, you’ll be surprised just how many adventures are all around you.

Take Cherry Creek State Park, for example, where the Cherry Creek Trail winds through beautiful piñon-juniper forest. There are great opportunities for paddleboarding on the reservoir here as well. And downtown Aurora is an adventure in itself—from the Stanley Marketplace, where you’ll find one of the most innovative food scenes in Colorado, to the Southlands Shopping Center, where it feels like you’re right on Main Street.
